because we know the house replubicans are going to automatically endorse the paul ryan budget which was revealed yesterday. this year's paul ryan budget exact copy of the last two paul ryan budgets. it guts medicaid turns medicare into a voucher program. it gives the wealthiest of americans yet another tax break and it repeals obamacare. it will get passed by the house. it will go nowhere in the senate. it is dead on arrival. but the republicans keep putting this out there. we will tell you about that and, of course, take your calls and get you a chance to get involved in the conversation. give us a call on our toll-free line at 866-557-7377. did we tell you? it looks like there was life on mars. whoa! coming up on current tv.

washington d.c. former vice-presidental nominee ron paul -- i'm sorry paul ryan, had a little ron paul on the brain there, paul ryan speaking about the need to get become to the party's conservative fiscal approach. these are live pictures right now of wayne lapierre of the national rifle association. there is also talk about smaller government and the need for fiscal conservatism. take a listen. >> we don't see the deaths as an excuse to cut with abandon, to shirk our obligations. we see it as an opportunity to change government, to make it leaner and more effective. these what conservatives stand for. that's who we are. jon: joining us is steven h*rb hayse with the "weekly standard" and a contribute. they said the future of the republican party took some shots at its past on thursday. more fireworks today, steven? >> yeah i think you will see some more fireworks as republicans and conservatives sort of work through what to do next after the results of the 2012 election. i thought what was interesting this morning, at least, is to contrast what you heard from paul ryan who is saying t
're not going to balance the budget in ten years because if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. >> jon: so president obama there appearing on abc telling george stephanopoulos that balancing the budget is not his goal and attacking congressman paul ryan for the budget that he proposed. so, jim, to you first. did the media ignore the president's contention that a balanced budget is not really in the realm for him? >> i don't think the media have ever thought of that as a particularly high goal for themselves and yet, as scott loopo, american conservative and matt miller "the washington post," both pointed out the problem the president's had on this sort of moderate budget course he's trying to strike, which is part tax increases and part this alleged spending cuts, nobody is really for that and too vague and also used the word gut g-u-t when it refers to medicare i think is the beginning of the 201
. let's remember the president said this earlier this week: >> paul ryan today put forthhis budget and is challenging you to come forward with a budget that also reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no. we're not going to balance the budget in ten years, because if you look at what he does to balance the budget, you have to voucherrize medicare. you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. >> let's not do that. our commander-in-chief doesn't think we need a balanced budget, and his democratic cohorts in the senate appear to agree with him. senator patty murray, the democratic chair of the senate budget committee, finally released their liberal budget plan, and in the next ten years in their budget government spending would increase by over $2 trillion. that's a 58% increase, but that's not all. the republicans on the senate budget committee also crunched the numbers and under the democrats' plan they would race taxes by $1.5 trillion. they just raised taxes. why would anyone think this budget
is in the days ahead. >> ambassador marc ginsberg, and dana milbank of the moe"washing post." >>> paul ryan gets downright mad at critics of his latest masterpiece. stay with us. >> we all say it because we all do things that are not good. the problem is not enough, not enough to say, i'm sorry. and children especially need to learn that. if you do something bad to another person, you need to make amends.

of a llck of seriousness, but it is beyond party. lou: house budget committee chairman paul ryan wrote of "wall street journal" op-ed today, laying out the republican 2014 budget plan. the right approacslices more than four and a half trillion dollars in spending and balance the budget within a decade and cuts tax rates while doing so. and it eliminates obamacare saving almost $2 trillion. that is not unlikely event. about as unlikely, in fact, as the democrats $1 trillion in new taxes. republicans and democrats obviously still as far apart as ever on the issues of spending and taxes. the president's budget proposal is still a mystery among but as press secretary today giving as something of an idea of just when that well overdue budget might finally be delivered by the white house. right now the president is focusing on meeting with democrats and repubcans on capitol hill. he has a lot to sell. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> reporter: on the day republicans put their budget on the table, president obama arrived on capitol hill for the start of th
with 23%, and single digits support went to rick santorum, chris christie, paul ryan, scott walker, ben cars on, ted cruz, bobby jindal and sarah palin. joining us now, nbc analyst and mccain senior adviser, steve schmidt, analyst and obama re-election campaign adviser robert gibbs and huffington post editorial director howard fineman. robert gibbs, this is your debut performance on the last word. we have a motto that's very republican. it is not what you say but how you say it. keep that in mind. >> i have to say that lead in provides an exceedingly low bar for which i can roll right over. you know, chairman priebus may have cued it perfectly. >> months later, he figured it out. >> might have spent less paper figuring out the two or three things they did right in 2012 rather than all of what they did wrong. i think they have a herculian task on their shoulders because it isn't about how you say it. obviously spending $10 million to do outreach with the same message will result in the same outcome. they have a huge problem in what they say, not in how they say it. and i think the bigges
september. the budgets have gone out. paul ryan said here is mine. take a look. i balance it in ten years. chris van hollen on the democratic side said i have a better idea. in the house, we like to have our version and it will be $1.2 trillion in new taxes, 200 billion in stimulus. now, ladies and gentlemen, if you want a democratic house in 2014, that's what your country is going to look like. >> steve: later today the house of representatives is going to consider paul ryan's budget, plus they're going to consider five alternative budgets. one, patty murr i wouldn't he -- murray, the democrat senator from her state. the congressional black caucus', progressive caucus' budget, the republican study committee budget, which balances the budget in five years, not in ten years like paul ryan's. and chris van hollen's budget as well. meanwhile, the haggling continues in washington. the charm offensive of the president, he was being honest, wasn't he? he really was trying to charm the republicans. yet, brit hume was on last night with bret baier on his former program and said whether it worked,
to have to cut kids, cut kids. that's not what paul ryan's budget does, but listen to the democrats the rhetoric, propaganda, misinformation and frankly the lies they continue to tell. let's roll this tape. >> you look at his principles, you look at his vision and they're a nightmare for america, he wants americans to work until they die. he wants poor people who get sick not to be able to see a doctor and not to get the care he needs. not to get better, he wants them to die. >> this is the alternative to balance, it results in unfair tax hikes on middle class americans and results in undue burden on middle class americans through the cuts envisioned. >> this republican budget once again makes an ideological, uncompromising approach to addressing that budget challenge. >> perhaps the best thing i can tell you about the republican budget is that here we go again. >> yesterday americans got their first look at this year's ryan republican budget. turns out it it looks like last year's ryan republican budget and it wasn't the only one. i wasn't the only one that said, gee-whiz, not agai
of the republican party's biggest stars are speaking. congressman paul ryan talked about the federal budget. and donald trump had a word or two about immigration. >> when it comes to immigration, you know that the 11 million illegals even if given the right to vote, you know, you're going to have to do what's right, but the fact is 11 million people will be voting democratic. >> historically we've paid a little less than one-fifth of our income in taxes to the federal government each year. but the federal government has spent a lot more. so our budget matches spending with income. >> again, mitt romney is to speak this hour. his first since losing the presidential race. we'll go there live as he starts talking. but first let's bring in our brianna keilar who is at the conference in maryland. so, brianna, this is romney's first speech. highly anticipated. >> reporter: highly anticipated his first major speech, fredricka, since his loss in november. we saw him give an interview recently to fox news channel. but as you can imagine it's very different i think sitting down one-on-one with someon

actually stop it. the house republicans are passing the paul ryan plan, and so then they'll go to conference and that where the heavy lifting will begin. >> shepard: the paul ripe plan has zero chance. >> it will pass the house and then they'll try to iron it out between the two plans. the paul ryan plan on its own would not be signed by president obama, would not pass the senate, burt it will pass the house. >> shepard: mike, thank you. meantime, something about our economy does not add up. we all know that. the latest government numbers show consumers spending grew at a strong pace. that's great because consumer spending counts for 70% of the total economic activity. here's the weird part. we're not seeing the expected comparable rise in our paychecks. we're spending more but no making more, and we're not spending more on credit cards. in fact the expert said the payroll tax hike would slow spending. it did not. so what is this? and rick suggests that more americans are taking advantage of the underground economy, earning and spending cash off the books to avoid taxes or othe
don't do is what paul ryan wants to do, to do away with obamacare, to do away with all kind of other things. and turn medicare to vouchers. i mean this guy is off the walls. >> dana: don't forget the part he wants old people to eat cat food. did you read that part in the budget? >> brian: here is thing. you a political guy. you should know this. the president could use republicans as his wedge against democrats who won't touch entitlement. use it as a strategy. guys, it's not my fault. the republicans got a voice in this. this is part of the deal to use them to knock the entitl entitlement. >> dana: all right. when we come back. shepard smith is live in rome with more on the election of pope francis. stay with us. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] this is joe woods' first day of work. and his new ss told him two ings -- cook what you love, and save your money. joe doesn't know it yet, but he'll work his way up from busser to waiter to chef before opening a restaurant specializing in fish and game from the great northwest. he'll start investing early, he'll find se good people to help guide

are candidates and for people younger than rand paul and marco rubio and paul ryan and national security hawks, i'm all for having younger candidates and i think that rand paul is too old. >> megyn: larry, let me ask you. because rand paul, these views are very similar to his dad's ron paul. and ron paul had huge followings, like rabid in the nicest way followers who supported him, but didn't get the nomination. in fact, he didn't come close to getting the nomination and what is to make us believe that his son is going to do better than he did? >> well, first of all, i don't think he is ron paul. i covered the ron paul campaign quite a bit for breitbart and this is how it is, and rand paul is on record and said he won't take military intervention off the table when it comes to stopping iran from acquiring anew because that's not certainly the same thing that he believed. and we brought up the spector of ronald reagan and he had three legs to that republican stool back then, the christian he coalition, you have the defense hawks, but you also have the small government libertarians and ronald reaga
